The four-time Pro Bowl pick returned to practice on Wednesday and says he’s pain-free, a boost for the league’s lowest-scoring team as Matt Moore replaces Jimmy Clausen at quarterback.
The Panthers will be without right tackle Jeff Otah (knee) and linebacker Jamar Williams (neck) against the 49ers.
Left guard Travelle Wharton (knee) is probable after fully participating in practice Friday for the first time this week.
